Salvador Perez placed on 7-day concussion disabled list
The red-hot Royals have lost their catcher for at least seven days, as Salvador Perez has a 'low grade' concussion.
Perez, 23, is hitting .278/.309/.382 with 19 doubles, four homers and 43 RBI this season. He's also developing a great reputation for his defense and how well he works with the Royals' pitching staff, so this is a big blow to the red-hot Royals, who had won 10 of 11 heading into Sunday.
Backup catcher George Kottaras is in the lineup Sunday in Perez's stead and will obviously get the majority of the starts with Perez out.
